Hello. I also manage several FreeBSD hosts and use SuSE 10.2 as my
desktop OS. On server side a lot of settings are needed however client
setting (to set a client to be able to authenticate with kerberos) is
extremely simple, just copy the server's /etc/krb5.conf to client
computer (same path) and that's enough. Use 'telnet server' on client
will automatically encrypt the telnet session (verified with packet

The same doesn't work on SuSE 10.2. I did set /etc/krb5.conf in suse,
but doing a telnet to the server from SuSE desktop establish telnet
connection *not-encrypted*.

I also tried to manually aquire ticket in order to check what's wrong,
and I cannot get the ticket:

zhangweiwu@joe:~> kinit
Password for zhangweiwu@xxxxxxxxxx:mysecret
Exception: krb_error 38 Incorrect net address (38) Incorrect net address
KrbException: Incorrect net address (38)
Caused by: KrbException: Identifier doesn't match expected value (906)
... 5 more

This is strange. The FreeBSD host right after this desktop works fine.
After googled a bit I found this person have the same problem:

It seems 4 years ago Geoff Beaumont finally couldn't get an answer from
lists. (Pretty interesting to see nothing related to Kerberos has been
changed on SuSE for the 4 years so his description of the problem is
still same as mine.) I guess now SuSE English list is so hot probably
someone can help me with this question?
